Small Business Week Calgary

Canada's largest celebration of small business

SBWYYC pays tribute to the contributions that small business make to the Canadian economy. Its focus is on uniting our city’s tireless, hard-working entrepreneurs under one tent to inspire and nourish the entrepreneurial spirit that powers Calgary’s economy—all through a full week of programming and events specifically tailored to their unique business needs.

Happening in the third week of October (October 21 – 25), Small Business Week Calgary is the largest celebration of small businesses across Canada. This week encompasses city wide events, workshops, and keynote speakers with the flagship event of the week being the Calgary Small Business Week Expo.  

The Expo is a full day tradeshow with breakout sessions and keynote speakers- it’s the largest B2B tradeshow in Canada! This is the place to be to network with potential clients, gain business advice, and learn from colleagues 

To close out the week, we host the Small Business Calgary Awards Gala, where the Small Business Awards are given out. Shinning a light on the unsung heroes of our small business community, we celebrate their achievements in exponential growth, innovation, social entrepreneurship and company culture. The awards program is currently accepting applications in eight categories.
